First you would like to see a before photo, after a long day at work.
Personal PhotoI was actually still on a teleconference when I arrived at my parents house for the trial. Not lettting that phase me, we got started with the hair, from my inspiration here.
We tried first up the insertable hair sponge to give my thin hair some much needed help. Whilst I liked it, It did make my head look extremely large. Or at least I thought it did but in hindsight its only the little bulge at the back above the bun.
After she had done this she asked if I wanted to keep the sponge until the wedding day or have her take it out and bring it with her, I went with the least responsibility for me and had her whip that thing out of there. Then I kind of liked it without the sponge it looked a lot more like my hair rather than a lot of extra hair? See how vague I can be, how they understood me I have no idea?
Personal photo - computers much?
I liked it both ways, so successful trial right? Except looking back over the photos afterwards I have realised that I want the whole 'do to be a lot smoother, which after talking to my hair person it definitely will be, phew. Hair, sorted.
Once hair was sorted it was across the table to get my makeup done by the lovely Mandy from Makeup by Mandy who I actually found through my bridesmaid and another close girlfriend from school who are both using her for their weddings - I can definitely see why - she is amazeballs! She used spray on foundation and false eyelashes to create a beautiful natural look that I absolutely love!
On go the fake eyelashes, look at the concentration in my face and I wasnt doing anything.
